WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Four different Demon Deacons took home championship trophies as the Wake Forest women's tennis wrapped up play at the Wake Forest Invitational on Sunday.

Kasey Gardiner (C Singles) and Karen Forman (D Singles) won the championship match of their singles flight, and Kimmy Guerin and Andrea Retolaza Andrade teamed up to take home the title in B Doubles.

Gardiner prevailed in a long match against Winthrop's Caitlin Cridland, notching a 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 victory. Forman's win in D Singles came much easier as she blew by UNCG's Amy Ellis 6-2, 6-2.

In the B Doubles final, Guerin and Retolaza Andrade jumped out to an early lead over ETSU's Giulia Andreazza and Jess Brumit and held on for an 8-4 victory.

Guerin and Retolaza Andrade also picked up victories in consolation singles matches as Guerin topped Jordan Johnston (Elon) 6-4, 7-5 and Retolaza Andrade won a 5-7, 7-6 (8), 7-6 (3) marathon against Winthrop's Andressa Garcia.

In other singles action, Brigita Bercyte took down Appalachian State's McKayla Zupan 6-1, 6-3 in E Singles consolation play.

The Deacons fell short in the other two doubles finals. Gardiner and Xue Zhang fell to No. 60 Johnston and Frida Jansacker of Elon in the A Doubles championship, and Forman and Bercyte lost to Elon's Tolley Rice and Viviana Stavreva in the C Doubles title match.

The Deacs will have a few weeks off from competition before traveling to Chapel Hill for the ITA Carolina Regional starting on Oct. 17.
